Cellphone Camera Performs Background Checks on Your ‘Future’ Facebook Friends

Via h+ magazine:

A new “Augmented Reality” app uses facial recognition software to instantly match faces viewed through an Android smartphone camera to that person’s social network profiles.

“Point your phone’s camera at someone nearby, and Recognizr measures facial features, builds a 3-D model, and sends the resulting signature to a server. If your subject has uploaded their photo and profile information, you’ll see their name and icons that link to their profiles on Facebook, MySpace, Yahoo!, Twitter, Flickr, etc., all floating around their face!”
